It was an excuse to use the new river sections and bridges for the first time, so I created a rustic setting with a winding river, crossed by no less than 3 bridges, leading to a small settlement based around an inn and a watermill. This would be a section of the border between Medetia and Fleurie, ripe for a raid by a Medetian force while it was only lightly garrisoned. Strengths were around 30 figures per side, although the Fleurians would start with their irregular allies (a dozen Cossacks) off table, with random arrival times and locations.
The garrison are alert, but don't yet know where the attack will come from
A lone sentry on the main bridge.
He didn't need a roll to spot the main Medetian force when it appeared moments later!
Meanwhile groups of musketmen were dashing forward on the left.
One at a time or all together! That's one brave Fleurian. He was determined to get at least one shot off (he missed) and didn't last much longer, as might be expected.
Flanking support was coming into position as the main force stormed the bridge.
While the main action on the main bridge was attracting most of the defenders' attention, the Medetians were pushing round on both flanks too.
The Medetians hurried to send more men that way too, and the action was by now spread over much of the table as the Medetians closed in from 3 directions.
